Get Immediate Treatment For Knocked-Out Tooth

Teeth can be knocked out during contact or non-contact sports, automobile accidents, and falls.
A knocked-out tooth, also known as an avulsed tooth, is an injury where a tooth is completely ripped out of its socket. If your tooth is knocked out, it is essential to protect it and your mouth from further damage. Time is critical when it comes to saving an avulsed tooth. The longer the tooth is out of the socket, the less likely it will be saved.
Do not panic if you don’t know what to do after your tooth is knocked out. We’re here to assist you. Your best course of action is to find the knocked-out tooth and protect it from further damage. You can do this by gently placing the tooth back into its socket. If that’s not possible, place the tooth in a container of milk or saliva until you can get to Darch Dental Centre. We provide emergency dental services for knocked-out teeth, including re-implanting or replacing the avulsed tooth. Our dentists are highly skilled in the latest techniques for replacing lost teeth, and we’ll work hard to get you back to feeling like yourself as soon as possible.

Reasons to Seek Treatment for a Knocked-Out Tooth

When a knocked-out tooth is re-implanted or replaced as soon as possible, the damage is less likely to worsen. Re-implanting or replacing a knocked-out tooth yields the following benefits:
  • A knocked-out tooth can cause a number of problems, including the misalignment of the teeth and jaw and difficulties with eating and speaking. By seeking treatment at Darch Dental Centre, we can help in ensuring that your mouth maintains its overall function.
  • If a tooth is knocked out and not replaced, the jawbone gradually shrinks, resulting in a loss of facial support. Dentists at Darch Dental Centre use modern technology to replace knocked-out teeth and help you retain your facial structure.
  • Leaving a knocked-out tooth untreated can lead to infection and damage to neighbouring teeth. Our experienced dental team at Darch Dental Centre will assess the damage and take steps to prevent further damage to adjacent teeth.

Knocked-out teeth can result from falls, assaults, and multiple traumas such as vehicle collisions, but most often occur during contact sports. However, even non-contact sports can lead to tooth injuries.
A knocked-out tooth can be re-implanted if you act fast. The nerves and blood vessels that are damaged when a tooth is knocked out can never be repaired. However, the bones and tissues that cover the root can be reattached. Prompt and correct emergency action can save the tooth so that it can be replanted successfully.
We urge you not to wait. Please schedule an appointment with our emergency dentist right away. Re-implanting a knocked-out tooth as soon as possible increases its chances of embedding itself back into the gums. Your dentist must reattach your tooth to its socket within 30 minutes, or 60 minutes at the most. Over 60 minutes, the chances of successfully reattaching your tooth decrease.

Immediately seek treatment if your tooth has been knocked out. The tooth will likely survive if re-implanted within 30 to 60 minutes in its socket. A knocked-out tooth’s chance of survival decreases after 60 minutes away from the mouth.

Pick up the tooth by its crown instead of its roots. Clean it carefully with water. Using your fingers, gently push the tooth back into the socket and gently bite down on it to hold it in place. If you can’t put it back in its socket, the tooth must be kept moist in your mouth, next to your cheek, under your tongue, or in an emergency dental preservation kit. You can also store it in milk, but regular tap water isn’t recommended because root surface cells can’t withstand long-term contact with water.

Gently push the tooth back into the socket using your fingers, and then bite down on it to hold it in place. If you cannot place it back into the socket, keep it moist in your mouth, next to your cheek, under your tongue, or in an emergency dental preservation kit. You can also soak it in milk; tap water should not be used because the root surface cells cannot withstand prolonged moisture contact.

An infection is the most significant risk when your tooth is knocked out. Bacteria can infect the exposed tooth socket, causing inflammation. This infection could eventually harm the re-implanted tooth. To protect yourself from infection, your dentist may prescribe antibiotics. Among the other risks are:

  • Loss of significant amount of blood
  • Damage to the nerves
  • Damage to the tooth roots
It is recommended to wear a mouthguard whenever you play sports, especially those that involve contact. By wearing a sports mouthguard, you can reduce the risk of injury to your teeth, gums, lips, jaw, and face
